Description

A sweeping, romantic debut set in Cornwall, reminiscent of Rosamunde Pilcher.

When artist Maddie inherits a house in Cornwall shortly after the death of her husband, she hopes it will be the fresh start she and her step-daughter desperately need. Trevenen is beautiful but neglected, and as Maddie discovers the stories of generations of women who've lived there before, she begins to feel her life is somehow intertwined within its walls.

But Maddie's dream of a calm life in the countryside is far from the reality she faces - and as she pulls at the seams of Trevenen's past, the house reveals secrets that have lain hidden for generations.

Review quote

A heart tugging story of loss and recovery. -- Fanny Blake * WOMAN & HOME * This is a book about loss, misguided decisions, heartbreak and change, but it's also about hope, long held secrets and friendships formed between the unlikeliest of people ... [it] made me laugh out loud and cry a few times. I loved it -- Debs Carr * NOVELICIOUS * ... the story is beautifully told with characters who reach out to you * SIDMOUTH HERALD * THE CORNISH HOUSE is an escapist and often emotional book, in which relationships are put to the test. * STAR MAGAZINE * Totally absorbing, a delightful debut novel * TELEGRAPH & ARGUS *
